Multi-Color Double-Knitting with Alasdair Post-Quinn
This workshop will get you comfortable with some of the 'extreme' double-knitting techniques that I have developed. In a single swatch, you'll learn three-color single-pattern and three-color two-pattern double-knitting. You'll also learn how to integrate the third color into a really clean double-knit edge and a bind-off that mirrors the cast-on.
Note: Previous double-knitting experience required. (You should either have taken Alasdair's Introduction to
Double-Knitting workshop in person or on Craftsy, or have done some
other standard (not slip-stitch) double-knitting colorwork on your own
or in another workshop.)
3 contrasting colors of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range and a pair of straight or circular needles in the proper size.for your yarn.
If you're not already familiar with my cast-on, please learn it before the workshop so we we can move right into new techniques. The cast-on we'll be doing is subtly different from the one currently online but it's best if you have a solid foundation. You can find a video tutorial on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQpsC1FKGrU. Also, please bring a sample or photo of your previous double-knitting work, if handy.
